Manager: Mir not released, but taking time off

Wednesday, March 26, 2014

Frank Mir has been fighting in the UFC for thirteen years and has fought in five world title fights. Mir is currently on a three-fight losing streak, which led fans to speculate he might be released from the organization, but that doesn't seem to be the case:

On Wednesday, however, Mir's manager Malki Kawa confirmed to FOX Sports that the longtime UFC heavyweight is still in the UFC's employ.

“He's just taking time off,” Kawa said. “He's taking a little bit of time and we'll figure out what his next fight is going to be, and what he's going to do next. Right now we haven't come to a conclusion on that time frame yet.”

“We'll know something very soon, but there's nothing really happening quite yet,” Kawa said. “But yeah, he's still on the roster.”
